Hi ... from Terry Lee & Fred

Bright Star Antiques Auction ... in Sulphur Springs Friday/Saturday ... August 26~27.  {see pics}

10STAR 0005










UPDATE 8/17/2016

Time is running short; it’s just days before the biggest auction Bright Star Antiques has ever done.  The volume of fabulous Americana is unprecedented, but we expect that from Jay.  What isn’t expected are the very early dolls ... German bisque dolls, a rare metal jointed Boy Doll in original clothing (tweed suit with cap & knickers circa 1925),
an early Pre-Greiner Doll with glass eyes and early painted child’s rocker, an early Greiner Doll with original label, Bliss doll furniture, and Bliss doll houses covered in lithograph paper.  They all come from the collection of Jean Hess, an incredible Texas lady who is in her 90's and loves to talk about her “family.”  She certainly has the eye, but not just with dolls and doll houses.  Her painted cabinets and original art work are prominently displayed in the front room of the gallery.  It even spills into the next room which is why SESSION 2 of Bright Star’s auction is a total of 965 Lots.

Note ... We have 3 separate pictures galleries ... the 1st for the Dolls, the 2nd for the Gallery on Saturday, and the 3rd for Sessions 1 and 1.5 on Friday.

Joyce Morris Estate Sales ... in Corsicana starting Wednesday.  {see pics}

11JOYCE 0001










Is your breathing somewhat labored?  Feeling a little dizzy?  Then you’re in the right place ... CORSICANA, TEXAS at Joyce Morris’ estate sale!  Fred and I had the exact same reaction when we walked through the door ... walls covered in original art work (including works by Texas artist), limited edition prints, a signed artist’s proof by Olaf Wieghorst, a limited edition painting (giclee) “Cheyenne Dog Society” by Edward L. Holmes ... folk art pieces ... signed pottery ... sterling and silverplate serving pieces ... fabulous crystal from Waterford & Steuben (some signed pieces too) ... mid-century furniture (a surfboard coffee table and night stands) ... an amazing collection for one house.  You’ll see unique items like the carved opal frog on a jade base ... sterling silver and turquoise Kachina dolls (my personal favorite) ... and the Daum sculpture “Snowy Mountain Peak.”  You could spend hours taking it all in.  But we’ve made it easy for shoppers with a large gallery of pictures to help you in the process.  If you’re a collector, this is the place to start.  And in case Fred and I fail to mention something wonderful, you’ll see it pictured.  Let’s start off with ...

Remington Estate Sales ... in Keller starting Thursday.   {see pics}

01REM 0139








AWESOME SALE!  This is the home of a representative of Mars Candies who traveled the world searching for the best cocoas to use in the manufacture of MilkeyWay and Snickers Bars, M&M and Twix candies.  During her travels, the homeowner brought home suitcases full of treasures ... Egyptian weavings, a Jordanian headdress, a rooster bottle opener from the African country of Lesotho, Peruvian masks and tapestries, handwoven baskets from Tanzania, cloth from Ghana ... incredible finds you don’t see outside a museum collection.  But not all items come from the homeowner’s world travels.  Antiques and primitives were found here in Texas and Oklahoma.  Some remained pristine; others were refurbished and painted.  The inside of the home is a wonderland of collectibles, but so is the outside.  That’s where you’ll find yard art created from old farm plows ... rested wheelbarrows ... and a Garden Mark trike purchased from Montgomery Ward.  Fabulous finds everywhere you look.  There’s even a 1986 Chevrolet Silverado C-10 pickup.  Mileage?  Hard to say, but probably the odometer turned over at least once, maybe twice in its life!  Defining this sale has been an adventure for Fred and me.  Now read what José, Georgette, and Stephen think of their sale ...

Ralph Willard ... in Duncanville starting Thursday.  {see pics}

10RAL 0001










Great furniture by Hooker, Henredon, Baker, and Drexel ... tons and tons of collectibles (militaria that includes WWII and Korean era shirts, overcoat, field jacket, blankets, boots, and bags of military buttons) ... trays filled with costume jewelry and men’s fashion watches ... a set of blue vintage luggage in great condition ... china from US, Japan, and Germany along with Waterford crystal and Czech cut glass ... original Texas art work ... a violin with case ... wonderful books (“A Legacy of Texas Quilts,” Norman Rockwell books, books about WWII, and more) ... a full kitchen that includes lots of small appliances and cookware still in original boxes waiting to be opened and used.  The house is as full as could possibly be and a tight squeeze through the labyrinth of walkways.  Head into the garage and find more of the same ... hand tools, his and her bicycles, tricycles, lawn equipment.  It’s one of those incredible sales that has so much to offer, you can’t help but shop it every day it’s open.  Fred and I have to pass along kudos to Ralph and Jessie for one of their all time best setups!  The place looks great.  It’s an easy location to find ... just south of I-20 off S. Cockrell Hill Rd.  You may want to bring extra packing material because you won’t be going home empty handed.  Instead, you’ll be toting ...

LOST ... again!  Antiques & Decor ... in the Dallas Design District.  Open Every Day.  {see pics}

LOST 0001 









Shopping LOST ... again! in their new location on Riveredge Drive in the Dallas Design District is an amazing experience.  They call themselves an “Antique & Decor” store, but it’s much more than that.  Yes, they have incredible antiques plus ... Mid-Century Modern ... Contemporary ... Americana ... Art Deco ... Original Art Work ... African Art ... Folk Art ... an amazing collection of Geodes & Seashells (think mammoth sizes) ... such an array of styles from different periods that Baby Boomers, Gen X’ers as well as Millennials will name LOST ... again! their favorite store.  It all has to do with the flood of high rises being built on the same block and directly across the street from LOST ... again!  Even  restaurants are claiming space between stores and newly created living spaces turning the area into a beehive of people and activities.
